Are there currently restrictions on travel to Incheon related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Incheon along with the rest of South Korea. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Entry restrictions

South Korea has restricted the entry of all travelers who have been in the Hubei Province of China in the past 14 days. Chinese nationals with passports issued in the Hubei Province are also not allowed to enter the country. Korean visas issued by the Wuhan Consulate in the Hubei Province are invalidated. Nationals of China and travelers arriving from China must have visas to transit through South Korea. Travelers arriving from China with a diplomatic, consular, official, service or special passport or who are nationals of Albania, Andorra, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Ireland, South Korea, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Nicaragua, Palau, San Marino, Slovenia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Vatican City and Venezuela may still transit through South Korea without a visa. Short-term visas (type C-1 and C-3) issued on or before April 5 are invalidated. Visa exemptions for 90 nationalities with normal passport are temporarily suspended, except for airline crew.or passengers with an APEC Business Travel Card. Travelers with a visa on an expired passport must present a printed "Visa Grant Notice" and the expired passport to the immigration upon arrival.

Entry requirements

Foreign nationals residing in South Korea on most types of long-term visa will need to apply for a re-entry permit at a local immigration office or at the airport before undertaking any travel out of South Korea. Those traveling with a re-entry permit will also be required to have a medical examination no earlier than 48 hours before they plan to return to South Korea, and to obtain a medical certificate in English or Korean demonstrating COVID-19 negative status. Merchant seamen with a visa must have a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued at most 48 hours before departure. The certificate must be in English and the passengers must have two copies of the certificate. All flights must arrive at Incheon International Airport (ICN) between 5:00 am and 8:00 pm.

Quarantine requirements

All travelers arriving in South Korea will be subject to PCR testing and a mandatory self-quarantine for 14 days. In some cases, Korean authorities have permitted immediate blood relatives or spouses of long-term residents to self-quarantine at their family’s home. For this, travelers would need to provide proof of relationship (e.g., marriage or birth certificate), and should understand that Korean immigration officials have the final authority to approve quarantine arrangements. All travelers including airline crew members must also complete Health Declaration Forms and Special Quarantine Declaration Forms through a self-diagnosis app. Nationals and residents of South Korea are required to install a 'Self-quarantine safety protection app'. Chinese nationals who are traveling on business under the Fast Lane program and their family members are exempt from the quarantine requirements; however, they must self-monitor their health conditions for at least 14 days before departure and must hold a medical certification of a negative COVID-19 testing result issued within 72 hours before departure. They will receive an additional test upon arrival, after which they must stay at a designated quarantine facility for up to 1-2 days until receiving the result. Once receiving a negative test result, they will be allowed to end their quarantine.

Transiting rules

Nationals of Mongolia, Russia and Thailand are restricted from transiting through South Korea on their way to or from those countries, and all foreign travelers who have been in Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Philippines or Uzbekistan in the past 14 days must have a medical certificate with a negative Coronavirus (COVID-19) PCR test result issued at most 48 hours before arrival to enter South Korea. The certificate must be in English. Transit passengers will receive a temperature check on arrival in Korea. Symptomatic individuals will be subject to a COVID-19 test and hospitalization if found positive. Passengers who do not show symptoms and/or test negative may continue their journey. Transit passengers at Seoul Incheon Airport require a ticket/boarding pass for their onward flight to their final destination. Travelers should confirm with the airline(s) before departure that their bags have been checked through to their final destination (as transit passengers are not able to collect and re-check in baggage on arrival in Incheon Airport).

. If you are looking to book a trip to Incheon and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

The port city of Incheon is typically the average visitor’s first introduction to South Korea. Home to the country’s main international airport, Incheon greets visitors by showing off what a modern country South Korea has become. With one of the world’s top-rated airports, one of the country’s largest underground shopping arcades and an attractive waterfront bursting with entertainment and dining options, Incheon sets the tone for an enjoyable vacation in South Korea.

Many visitors to the city will find themselves in the neighborhood of Bupyeong, where a flurry of restaurants, bars and the aforementioned underground shopping arcade offer unlimited ways to spend a day enjoying modern Korean culture. Another popular destination is the Arts Center District, home to performance venues, department stores, designer boutiques and restaurants.

Other gems abound, too. Incheon is home to the country’s only official Chinatown, and the neighboring Liberty Park and its statue of General MacArthur memorialize the history of Korea-U.S. relations. Also worth a visit is Independence Memorial Hall, a tribute to South Korea’s liberation from Japan.

Fun and frolic await at the island of Wolmido, where the waterfront beckons with amusement park rides, carnival games and seafood restaurants. Several other nearby islands offer hiking and nature walks, a contrasting experience to that which travelers find in the metropolis of Incheon.
